WASHINGTON, D.C. (KCAU) – Representative Steve King announced a Siouxland student will have her art on display in the nation’s capital.

Elise Masters is a high schooler at Odebolt Arthur Battle Creek Ida Grove Community School.  Her piece, named “Farm Food Chain,” will be on display for one year in the Capitol Building.

It’s part of the annual Congressional Art Competition sponsored by the U.S. House of Representatives to recognize artistic members of their district.

“We have an abundance of talented young artists in Iowa’s 4th District, and I appreciate the efforts of everyone who entered the Congressional Art Competition,” said King. “This year’s winner, Elise Masters, produced a terrific piece that is visually appealing and representative of the importance of agriculture to our district. I congratulate Elise for her achievement and I look forward to seeing ‘Farm Food Chain’ on display in the Capitol.”

Masters and a guest will be flown to Washington, D.C. for the Congressional celebration.
